Funding Your Education
We hope to remove financial obstacles and provide the opportunity for all current and prospective students. Review the basic steps below.
How to complete your FAFSA
A Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID gives you access to Federal Student Aid’s online systems and can serve as your legal signature. Create one now at studentaid.gov.
Once your FAFSA has been submitted, the financial aid office will notify you if any additional documents are needed. We also recommend you check your Navigator "to do" list to see if any additional information is needed.
Once complete, the financial aid office will notify you via email and mail that your financial aid package is available.
